PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS WORKSHOP: Photographing the DC Memorials from Evening to Night
Jun 15, 2010 | By: Irene Abdou Photography, LLC, DC Photographer
I’m super excited about a new 1/2-day photography class workshop that I’m putting together for Monday, July 5th on Photographing the DC Memorials from Evening to Night. One of the things that students at my last workshop on Art of Architecture: Photographing the Franciscan Monastery appreciated a lot was the “intimate” nature of the class, and how that lent itself to a lot of great student-instructor and student-student interaction. So I’ve decided to continue in that spirit with my newest workshop, by limiting it to just 3-5 students.
So here’s the deal: we’ll start out at the Lincoln Memorial and end at the World War II Memorial, hitting the FDR and Jefferson Memorials, as we make our way around the Tidal Basin. Our objective? To explore the infite possibilities of artistic vision through two global projects.
In the first global project, each student will self-assign him/herself one of the following projects - wide angle vs. telephoto, depth of field, movement, or composition – completing all four projects by the end of the workshop.
In the second global project, each student will select from: time lapse, painting with light, high dynamic range, or panorama. So students can gather images for the second global project either from a single memorial or from all the memorials.
I’m super-excited about this entire workshop… If you’re interested in registering, send me an e-mail or give me a call, and I’ll send you the official registration link! (Three seats are already reserved for students who pre-expressed interest, so right now, I’m in “pre-registration.” That means that I can send the official registration link to two more people.)
Note that this workshop is probably best for more advanced students, but if there’s interest out there for a similar beginning workshop, let me know, and I’ll put one together! In a beginning workshop, I’d make sure to allocate time to the fundamentals as part of the workshop. Also, I offer private one-on-one photography classes as well.
